Okay, this is kind of a rant, but at the same time, this is information that you guys need to know so this won't keep happening.
First off, the most important point made in this journal...
I know, many of the people who probably ask this aren't even one of my watchers and are just curious, but as much as it pisses me off to see the same question a few times a week, it would be super wrong of me to explode rage on one of them.
You'd think that they would try to look for hints if I was a request-taker by briefly checking my profile, but to me, it seems like they look at one good drawing I do, then instantly ask for a request.
So no, I do not take requests or commissions.
But, somebody might spring up and say, "Well, you answer questions for people! Don't they count as requests?"
Partly yes, but mostly no. Unlike requests, the questions you ask me are very limited. You can't just say "Can you draw me blah blah blah" as a question to me or my persona, Artsi Cat. Only my selected fancharacters (and Artsi) can be asked questions, and the accuracy of the question is very important. When you think about it, there are ways to word a request into a question relatable to one of the FCs, (I'm not giving examples, though) you just have to think.
And lastly, art trades. It's a good thing that someone brought it up.
Since I answer questions for you guys, consider the answer to your question as my half of the art trade if you want to do one.
I usually see art trades like 50/50 requests. I never really did one since it involves me having to request someone to draw something for me, and I never really liked doing that. It makes me feel like the lazy person since I know I can draw it myself.
So, if you guys need any ideas on what to draw for me for the art trade, just check out my gallery. My interests are very broad. You can draw anything that I have indicated that I am interested in through the fanart I have drawn.
You are allowed to draw my FCs, just credit me when you draw them. And make sure that you read their bios in case if you're unsure about their personalities.
And if you want to draw Artsi, my persona with another character:
make sure that it is one who I have drawn her interacting with, (Ex. Artsi with Kogenta, Leo, etc. most of them are in the featured section of my gallery)
or one that has enough evidence of my opinion on the character. (Examples are characters that I may have mentioned in my descriptions/journals but have not drawn.) That way, you'll be more certain on her personality, and it's safer than trying to use a character that I'm not familiar with.
Despite of all this, my idea to take a break is still not brushed off. I still have 5+ questions to do that were asked before the last journal I posted. So again, if you ask me a question now, expect it to be a while before I get around to it.
